What’s the top thing prospective college students are in search of? A scholarship, of course. Scholarships, or grants that offer full or partial financial help toward a student’s education, are given on the basis of achievement, such as above average academics or athletics. And with student loans increasing every year, it’s a no-brainer for college applicants to be looking for a way to decrease this amount when graduating.

Sometimes scholarships can be hard to come across, so the key is knowing where to look. So if you’re having a hard

time finding places to apply for scholarships, don’t fret. Here are some of the best places to find a scholarship:

The college you’re applying - It sounds obvious, but many prospective students don’t even think about inquiring at the college of their choice.

So if you’re applying at your dream college, it doesn’t hurt to give the financial aid officers a call and ask them about scholarship opportunities — they’re the ones with the most information about their particular institution, after all.

Community organizations - Ask about scholarships at your local church or civic area locations. Check out the local rotary or Lions, Eagles and Elks clubs.

It’s also possible that your neighborhood may be part of a community foundation or a Dollars for Scholars® chapter, which can offer many scholarship opportunities.

Family and friends - Maybe your parent’s employers provide an opportunity to apply for a scholarship. Or perhaps your friend works in an environment where they have access to scholarship prospects. Also, your high school guidance counselor is bound to have ideas and options on where

Top Places to Look for



It’s never too early to start planning for your child’s financial future, and Police FCU can help.

A youth account is a great place for your young ones to manage money from summer jobs, allowance, birthday and other gift money. Now is a great time to teach your children about financial education, saving, spending, and budgeting. Parents, did you know: For your older children, 16 and 17 years of age, Police FCU offers a great way to prepare for the transition from high school to college.

Are you “wild about savings”? April is National Credit Union Youth Month™. Now is a great time to bring your young one in and introduce them to the Police FCU family. We’re here to help you launch the youth in your life toward financial independence, and here’s how:

Join. For starters, open a credit union savings account for each child in your family. As soon as your children can write, have them fill out deposit and withdrawal slips. Guide teenagers through using a debit card and tracking transactions.

Share. Include your children in household money discussions. Show them how you budget income and expenses. As their skills improve, give them challenges—such as finding a better cell phone plan, calculating the total monthly cost of owning a car, or sticking to a budget for back-to-school or holiday spending.

Coach. Remind your children to ask for help when they need it. And turn to your credit union when you want help.

Our tradition of service and philosophy of self-help make Police FCU and all credit unions a natural partner in pursuing financial security.

Start Early and Teach Your Kids Financial Wellness opportunities might be available to you. Even throwing it out there on a Facebook status or in a tweet might help — you never know who’s reading your posts and who can offer help. In this day and age, it’s all about networking when it comes to scholarships, and you can never ask too many people for their help.

The Internet - There are a number of websites that can help you get started. For example, offers creative and fun scholarships that students can apply for. is a great resource for not only monetary awards, but also services and tips on career planning. There’s also,

which uses a rewards system to determine the types of scholarships users best qualify

for, as you earn points through a variety of activities. Not even

sure where you’re applying yet? helps you narrow down scholarships and colleges

that work best for you and your personalized needs.

One important thing to keep in mind: You should never pay for scholarship advice.

“If you have to pay money to get money, it is probably a scam,” says Kantrowitz. “Never invest more than a postage stamp for information about scholarships or to apply for a scholarship.” Once you know how much more you’ll need, let us help you get the money you need for all of your educational needs.

We’re here to help.
